A highly soft, stretchable, and sticky polydimethylsiloxane-based elastomer is achieved by adding small fractions of an amine-based polymer. The modified elastomer is tuned with a simple mixing step and shows good processability for microstructure fabrication. The modified elastomer shows excellent compatibility with an epidermal strain sensor on human skin.
